This past weekend was anything but relaxing and I am a-okay with that. That is until my alarm went off this morning telling me the weekend is over and I have to go to work. I shouldn't complain though, this is the first full week I've worked all year and I have a three day weekend coming up, followed by three (hopefully) quick weeks of work before I head off to Cabo!
Right after work on Friday I booked it home to change so I could make it to a barre class I had signed up for through ClassPass at Six Degrees in UpTown. It's just 2 blocks from my apartment and I made it just in time for a quick run through of the class before it started.
Of all the classes I've been to in my life, this one left me so much more sore than any other class. Except that very first spin class where you are sore in places you didn't know existed. It's been three days and my arms are still shaky and it hurts to laugh after all those different planks, push-ups and crunches. It was unlike any other barre class I've taken, but I really liked it and will hopefully be adding that to my Fridays going forward. Assuming I'm able to lift weights again by then.
After class it was officially date night and we headed to the warehouse district for some Black Sheep Pizza and a show at Acme Comedy. There were to comedians in town that were on Last Comic Standing. We both agreed that Randy Liedtke stole the show and was a great comedian.
Saturday morning I had plans to have brunch with a couple of my cousins. We went to the UpTown Tavern and the $3 mimosas were fun, but the food was less than stellar. We kept the afternoon going by bringing Pam to Trader Joe's for the very first time. I think it's appropriate to say that she absolutely loved the place and it's probably going to be her regular shopping destination from now on.
Later that night the cousins reconnected at another cousins house but this time there was babies involved which makes most gatherings all the more fun. We had some drinks and food, listened to music, chatted and spent a lot of time saying 'he's sooo cute!' Pam and I had a sleepover at her house and I was a stand up guest by falling asleep on her couch.
Sunday was pretty standard with volleyball practice. We did a ton of serve receiving so to keep the serves constantly going over the net, Shelby and I served to the girls. I forget what a workout volleyball is, especially serving approx ~100 balls. We have our first tournament on Sunday and I'm a tad nervous. Not really for the girls, but for myself.
After practice I asked my parents if I could come over and hang out with Miley. Of course they said yes because she needed a bath and I'm the only one who bathes her. We ordered my favorite pizza and got totally sucked in to the Golden Globes. I'm not usually an awards show fan, but when celebs get drunk and get to have a mic, I'll stay and watch.
And that's all she wrote.
